In Your Community | 2016 Michigan BluesFest

Sep 6, 2016

Look for WKAR's award-winning production crew at the 2016 Michigan BluesFest in Old Town Lansing, September 16 & 17, recording for the next season of BackStage Pass.

The Michigan BluesFest is a two-day FREE music festival that brings national, regional, and local acts to an audience of roughly 7,000 people from across Michigan and nearby states. Each artist at the festival is asked to play an original composition, something that hasn’t been played at any other festival.

Festival vendors offer delicious ethnic and American food, beverages, jewelry, clothing and crafts, and nearby galleries and boutiques open their doors during festival hours.

The Kidzbeat area offers interactive activities for kids of all ages. Saturday from 1–5 pm, face painting will be provided by MICA, and MSU’s Broad Art Museum invites kids  to work on unique projects related to the museum.

Performances will take place Friday and Saturday at both the MICA stage (1200 block of Turner St.) and the North Stage.
